discoveries from modern science

Randy emailed me the following list with his comments in parentheses. I don’t know who wrote the comments in parentheses, but they made me laugh.

Did you know that if you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough energy to heat one cup of coffee? (Hardly seems worth it)

If you pass gas consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb (Now that’s more like it)

(Hang on to your hat on this one) A pig’s orgasm lasts for 30 minutes. (In my next life, I want to be a pig but I would like to know how they discovered this, and why?)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Still can’t get over that pig thing)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (That’s why Flipper was always smiling!) (And pigs get 30 minute orgasms? Doesn’t seem fair)

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmm…)

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. (From drinking little bottles of…?)

Polar bears are left-handed. (Who knew? Who cares? How’d they find out?)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (What can be so tasty on the bottom of the pond?)

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It’s like a human jumping the length of a football field. (30 minutes. Can you imagine? And why pigs?)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head, before it starves to death. (Creepy)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male’s head off. (Honey, I’m home. What’s for dinn…) (I hope no one told them about the pigs).

Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (That’s great but in my next life, I still want to be a pig; quality over quantity)

Butterflies taste with their feet (Oh, geez)

An ostrich’s eye is bigger than it’s brain (I know some people like that)

Starfish don’t have brains (I know some people like that too)

(After reading all these, all I can say is: Lucky pigs)
